Here are a few quick steps to follow in order to create an effective business card.

Sinkholes: When the Earth opens up
The Atlantic
The ground beneath our feet, our cars and, our buildings, appears to be incredibly solid. But rarely, that solid ground can simply open up without warning, dropping whatever was above into an unpredictably deep hole. Sinkholes can be anywhere from a few feet wide and deep to 2,000 feet in diameter and depth.

ADWR's Land Subsidence Monitoring Program
Arizona Department of Water Resources
In 1997, numerous nonexempt wells were proposed in the Apache Junction and Luke Air Force Base areas, both areas noted for significant historic land subsidence and earth fissuring. Arizona Department of Water Resources management had concerns over the potential for the new wells to cause unreasonable increasing harm which led to a Directorate level decision to begin a land subsidence monitoring program. As a result, Geophysics/Surveying Unit of the Hydrology Division was created and started monitoring land subsidence by collecting survey-grade GPS data on survey monuments in the Hawk Rock land subsidence area located in east Mesa and Apache Junction.
